Ryan Reeves Eliminated by Fan Voting from Wwe Smackdown!'s '$1,000,000 Tough Enough'

[via press release from UPN]

RYAN REEVES ELIMINATED BY FAN VOTING FROM WWE SMACKDOWN!'S "$1,000,000 TOUGH ENOUGH� "

Only three contestants remain in WWE SmackDown!�s "$1,000,000 Tough Enough," after Ryan Reeves, 6-foot, 275 pound native of Las Vegas, Nev., was eliminated by fan voting last night.

Last week, Reeves and his fellow competitors were pitted against each other in an arm wrestling tournament. In the first match up, ultimate fighter Daniel Puder took down reality show veteran Mike Mizanin, the lefty who had to arm wrestle with his right hand. In the second match up, the impressively built Ryan Reeves, competing with 2 broken ribs, defeated the All-American athlete, model/actor Justice Smith. In the final match between the two winners, Puder came out on top and scored another victory in the "Tough Enough" competition.

This week, after the four remaining contestants were brought to the ring, each was asked who they felt should be eliminated from the competition. Mike "The Miz," Mizanin declared he would vote off Daniel Puder, calling him a "teacher�s pet" and questioning his standing as a true UFC fighter. Ryan Reeves also voted to eliminate Puder, and challenged Puder�s motives by accusing Puder of being more into marketing himself as an Ultimate Fighter and not genuinely caring about becoming a WWE Superstar. Justice Smith became the third contestant to vote Puder off, calling him a "young kid" who verbalizes his confidence too much. Puder, smiling through looks of shock and outrage, voted to eliminate Justice Smith, claiming that as the "biggest guy here," Smith hasn�t proven himself. Even though the competitors agreed to eliminate Daniel Puder, the worldwide audience voted off Ryan Reeves.

Then, Al Snow� stunned the three remaining contestants with this week's challenge to "get in touch with their feminine side" -- including hair, makeup and clothes. Later, Al introduced the transformed competitors "Danielle" Puder, "Justina" Smith and "Michelle" Mizanin to the special guest judge of the contest, WWE Superstar and former "Tough Enough" trainer Hardcore Holly�. Each challenger had 30 seconds to convince the audience that he was a woman, and that Hardcore Holly was the object of "her" affections. With Holly disgusted and reluctantly participating, the three tested their "feminine wiles" on him as the audience cheered on. While the crowd selected a clear winner of the night's challenge, the fans will continue to choose who will move forward in the quest for the $1,000,000 WWE contract. Voting is going on right now exclusively on wwe.com.

Special head trainer and WWE legend Al Snow leads the competitors through a weekly ritual of training and challenges as they strive to become the Tough Enough Champ and newest Superstar on WWE SMACKDOWN!, with a WWE contract worth $1 million. Each week until December 16, when the winner is crowned, SMACKDOWN! viewers vote for their favorite competitor on wwe.com, with the participant with the least votes being eliminated from the competition.

"The $1,000,000 Tough Enough" airs during WWE SMACKDOWN!, Thursdays (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. For more information, log on to www.upn.com or www.wwe.com.
